The site and building has an extensive history as a site of trial, imprisonment and execution, and the museum is structured in a way that gives you an excellent insight into the how life in the building would have been. The crimes and punishments surrounding this building were genuinely fascinating. Apparently the tickets if you choose to visit in the daytime are about £9 for adults and £7 for children, and I think that if you are nearby and looking for something to do for the day then t... more

Ok, so I am going to be reviewing the Galleries of Justice from a slightly different angle; namely because I visited it in the middle of the night. In the name of things that you do to keep your partner happy, I agreed to spend the night in the Galleries of Justice doing a Most Haunted style vigil. Before the lights were turned off, we were allowed to see around the building and learn a bit about its history.

The Galleries of Justice is now a museum that is situated in Nottinghams Lace market and you can't miss it even if your just driving through.

At first site you can definately tell that it's an old court because its so well maintained from the outside.

The Galleries of Justice in the Lace Market area of Nottingham is an award winning museum. It won the 'Museum of the year 2007' award. The building was in use as courts and prisons from the 1780s to the 1980s. There is a Crime and Punishment tour where you can find out about crime and punishment over the last three centuries which includes reliving a trial in the original Victorian Courtroom. You are then sentenced and sent to the original prison cells and medieval caves and you can also see the prison exercise yard. Prisoners and gaolers are your guides for this tour. There is now a HM Prison Service collection exhibition at the museum and ... Read the complete review

If you are driving into Nottingham, over Trent Bridge, you cannot fail to notice the old Shire Hall building sitting high upon the cliff that is the back of Nottingham's Lace Market. Even from this distance, there is a sense of the historical importance of this rather eiree looking building. I want to tell you about a wonderful museum that can be found in the centre of Nottingham. No!....museum is the wrong word....Experience is more like it....Come with me as I give you a small insight into Nottingham's Galleries of Justice. Firstly, I want you to close your eyes as I take you back in time to 1828.....This is not a museum then of course, it is ... Read the complete review
